Music and Words by Michael Ching
Based on a concept by Dean Anthony

A contemporary genre-bending opera in one act. With over one hundred twenty productions since its 2013 premiere, Speed Dating Tonight! is one of the most popular operas of the 21st century.

Part of the magic of Speed Dating Tonight! is that no two productions are exactly alike. What will LOON’s expert production team and professional singers do with this one? You have two chances to find out.

Two performances only, October 22 and 23, at Clyde Iron Works.

Sung in English, with English supertitles projected above the stage.

General Seating $32, Students $12, Reserved Table Seating $45.

It’s an OPERA!

Lyric Opera of the North has not launched a dating service. This opera is not interactive. It’s a performance, for you, about people… people who are in a situation known as speed dating. Rest assured that the only speed dating happening at this opera will be on stage, performed by our amazing cast – keep scrolling to learn more about them!
